One of the best parts of being a small business owner is getting to meet [sometimes virtually] all kinds of creative and brilliant people. Lots of them also happen to be paving a path down the road of entrepreneurship.
One of my favorite pieces of advice from Gather was the encouragement to stifle the competition and comparison game. Let's choose to celebrate one another. Let's shop local and support small business to cheer on the women who are going hard after their dreams. I'm learning that they aren't just competitors - they are makers and creators, friends and wives and moms and daughters.
Here are a few of my recent favorites - links below!
Leather Pouch: Liz Riden
Mine is on the way and needless to say, I've been stalking the postman.
Illustrated Calendar: Brim Paper
Every month is better than the last. The photography is amazing.
Created by two friends who I respect a whole lot.
Rustic Wooden Box: Holbrook Hill
My mom made these. She is amazing and has a killer etsy shop.
